Calling oneself a professional doesn't really make one a professional. As a Northwestern Mutual Wealth Management Advisor, professionalism is defined not only by the measure of one's experience, education and accreditation, but by one's character and professional standard of practice in supporting clients as a trusted financial expert.

Through personal commitment, professional associations, accreditations and continuing education, I have worked hard to establish a reputation as a respected professional and to gain the trust of clients. Please take a moment to review my experiences and accomplishments.

Every AEP® designee is licensed, practices within the field, has proven experience, and is recognized by his or her peers as having a strong professional reputation.  An AEP® professional is required to obtain a significant amount of continuing education yearly, remain current with their licensing organizations, and certify loyalty to their clients and the team approach to estate planning. Your designee is committed to you and your unique situation and understands that each estate plan is different and must be handled with thoughtful consideration.  An AEP® professional will work with you to develop a strategy that will help you achieve financial security during your lifetime and facilitate the intended transfer of your assets at death, while taking into consideration your unique circumstances and the potential costs of alternative ways to achieve your goals.  As a member of the National Association of Estate Planners & Councils, each AEP® professional recognizes the importance of adhering to a code of ethics that emphasizes a team approach to estate planning.  You may rely upon the competency, knowledge, professionalism, integrity, obectivity, and responsibility to each person qualifying as a candidate for certification, as well as those who are currently certified.
